The low carb way of life:
We went out for dinner on Saturday night and although I didn’t eat as much as I used to do when going out for dinner, I still felt full. And my IBS problems returned the same evening and lasted till Monday. This won’t hold me back, however, from going out for dinner because I do love it. I just accept the consequences afterwards.
We also had breakfast at the hotel but I was prepared for that. I brought my own crackers which meant I could have a low carb breakfast at the hotel. After that the day wasn’t that good but I restarted on Monday. The rest of the week went according plan.
I made nut muesli on Sunday: mixed nuts, 2 tablespoons flaxseed, 1 tablespoon coconut oil and some cinnamon. Heat it in the oven at 120C for about 20 minutes and … voila.
Start weight on October 15th: 81 kg (178.5 lbs).
Weight on November 5th: 79 kg (174.1 lbs).
Total loss: 2 kg (4.4 lbs).
Recap: Three weeks low carb eating and it’s still going great. I haven’t been feeling well all week, felt down and tired. Not sure if that was of the weekend eating or because the time went back 1 hour on Sunday. But now I’m fine again and feel good. I don’t miss the bread or the cookies or the sugar stuff at all.
- The weather is extremely warm for this time of year. Yesterday it was sunny and 20C (68 degrees) which is warmer than normal. I’m not complaining at all, I love it.
- Tonight my friend K. and I are going to see the musical “Wicked”. The theatre is in Scheveningen which is situated at the beach. We will go early and have dinner at one of the beach restaurants there. K. has started in her new job last Tuesday and I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.
- Tomorrow I registered for a 6K (3.7 miles) run. It’s a trail run in a forest where we often walk with Bella, a 15 minute drive from home. I’ve done this run 2 years ago and it’s a nice run with a little hill in it which you have to run up twice (run is 2 rounds of 3K). Weather forecast is dry, sunny and around 13C (55 degrees): my kind of running weather.
